The Swiss company Stadler has taken over the German BBR Verkehrstechnik GmbH with its group companies as of 01.01.22 and is thus consistently expanding the company's own competencies in the future-oriented areas of signaling technology and digitization.
The two companies are thus jointly creating an even stronger provider of state-of-the-art signaling solutions to drive and help shape the digitization of the rail industry.
BBR founders Arne Baudis, Thomas Bergmann and Frank-Michael Rösch emphasize: "After handing over operational responsibility in 2017, we looked internationally for strategic partnerships. In Stadler, BBR has found a strong and highly innovative partner. As a Swiss company, Stadler has a similar corporate culture to the one we have shaped at BBR - medium-sized, flexible and appreciative. The Brunswick site will be further expanded into a center of excellence with state-of-the-art development and production capacities for the digitization of rail transport."
Stadler has been building trains for over 75 years. The system provider of solutions in rail vehicle construction has its headquarters in Bussnang in eastern Switzerland. Around 13,000 employees work at several production and engineering sites and over 60 service locations. The company is aware of its social responsibility for sustainable mobility and therefore stands for innovative, sustainable and durable quality products. The product range in the mainline and urban transport sector includes high-speed trains, intercity trains, regional and commuter trains, metros, tram-trains and streetcars. In addition, Stadler manufactures mainline locomotives, shunting locomotives and passenger coaches. Stadler is the world's leading manufacturer of rack railway vehicles.
